If you would like to enhance your space with tile flooring, we understand just how daunting the process can be! Thinking about where you want to install your tile, how much traffic it will experience, and knowing what type you’re looking for can play a huge factor in the tile you select. At Skaug Brothers Carpet One Floor & Home in Moses Lake, Washington, we can help you choose from a wide selection of premium tile flooring. Some questions we may ask include what your style is versus your daily routine so that we can recommend the best option for you. Plus, we will walk you through what the process is like to begin your tiling project! Considering a tile update? Here are a few tips to help you decide if tile flooring is the right choice for you!
There are three primary types of tile on the market today: ceramic, porcelain, and stone. However, ceramic and porcelain tiles are some of the most popular because of their classic style and their durability. While stone is certainly beautiful, porcelain and ceramic are available in a variety of designs, and they can be manufactured to give the appearance of natural stones with the bonus of durability and water/stain resistance.
*Our customers love enhancing their space with the look of real stone and natural wood without the maintenance. Some of these looks include a rustic or whitewashed look.
For a style that is classic, ceramic tile is the choice of the pros. This tile option offers style at a budget-friendly price, and it is made with recycled materials like clay and stone. What’s not to love? Plus, ceramic tiles are softer on the feet, and they help to reduce energy bills by keeping the house cooler during those humid months (and that’s something we all can appreciate here in Washington)!
While made of the same natural, recycled ingredients as ceramic tile, porcelain is kiln-fired at a higher temperature. This allows for a stronger more water-resistant seal, unlike ceramic, which tends to be more porous due to a lower baking temperature. For this reason, porcelain can be used in high-traffic areas that are prone to moisture, including kitchens and laundry rooms.
Tile is an extremely versatile material, and for good reason! It is durable, can be glazed or matte, and the styles are endless. If you are looking for a seamless hardwood-alternative flooring option, our porcelain tile is a great option. If you prefer a natural brickwork backsplash, our ceramic tile can add depth and character.

Ceramic is best for:
Kitchen and Wet bar backsplashes
